What does a Pinterest Virtual Assistant do?

I am going to start by bringing you back to the summer of 2015. I was doing some marketing for a few companies as a way to bring in some income while I stayed home with my two kids.

One of the companies that brought me on was struggling with sales. They had tried many different ways to promote their product (which targeted homeschool Moms), but they kept running into roadblocks and were starting to lose hope. 

I knew I had to think outside of the box. 4 years ago, Pinterest was JUST starting to become a new tool businesses were using for promoting their services and I figured I would give it a shot. I mean, who loves Pinterest more than Moms?! Or women in general!

So I gave it a shot.

I did not know anything about Pinterest Marketing compared to what I know today. But I did know the basics of it, so I dove in. Within three months (and TONS of work on my end) we had successfully increased their traffic AND sales simply from promoting their content for FREE on Pinterest.

That is when my interest in Pinterest took off, and LoveFamilyHealth started.

Before I created Pinterest Ninja and my other courses, I solely did Pinterest Virtual Assistant work. And I was making a little over 4K a month doing so. Helping other businesses use the platform to promote their websites and products.

I was working about 15ish hours a week. Mainly in the AM before my kids would get up. I could have done more, but I didn’t want to.

And this my friends is why I created VA Ninja. I know SO many women (and men) who have Pinterest down pat and could be doing the same thing. Yes, affiliate marketing is great, yes you can make money with ads, but by becoming a VA, you can make MORE money AND make your schedule. And all from the comfort of your own home.

What do you need to know to become a Pinterest VA?

  • How to create eye-catching pins.
  • Know how to set a Pinterest for Business account up from scratch.
  • Do keyword research to optimize the reach of each pin you create.
  • Set every profile you create up for proper SEO.
  • Join high performing, nich specific group boards.
  • Monitor group board performance.
  • Schedule pins.
  • Read and analyze Pinterest analytics to see how your client’s profile is performing.
  • Keep a close eye on pin metrics to see how pins are converting to website traffic.
  • Send monthly reports to your client with stats and strategies moving forward if analytics are down.

If you know this, you are golden!

If you don’t, that’s ok too!  Take your time learning Pinterest. Once you are having a lot of success with your account, you are probably ready to help others!
